Hello all

now that I have finally got CyrusSASL to authenticate....

next up is installing Samba

I'm running FreeBSD 5.2.1 and have the options in the ports tree of

In my test server intall I used 2.2.8 with success, and it is still 
running at home on a P166.... as a PDC

but here at work it must work for mostly Win98SE machines, plus a 
couple of Win2000 and XP laptops.  And in the future we'll have more 
W2k and XP of course.  22 seats this month, more in the future.
I will be using disk quotas if that makes any difference, and may use 
recycle bins.

I'm seeing a lot of comment here on problems with the 3 series Samba 
so I'm wondering if I should use it or wait for the 3.1 series (-:

Thanks for all advice
